Nasarawa Assembly suspend six lawmakers indefinitely
Yesterday, the 6 legislators mainly involved in the disorderliness were summoned by DSS to give account of what happened while the other legislators voted for them to be suspended indefinitely.
The six legislators who were suspended were all APC members namely: Abubakar Kana, Kokona West; Kassim Kassim, Akwanga South; Mohammed Okpoku, - Udega/Loko; Makpa Malla, Wamba; Musa Ali, -Keffi East; and Murtala Sodangi, -Nasarawa Central.
The six men were suspended at the session presided over by the deputy speaker, Godiya Akwashiki for “misconduct and for bringing the House to disrepute” followed by a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Tanko Tunga, who accused them of bringing dishonour to the House. He was supported by the Minority Leader, Muhammed Alkali and fourteen others legislators present.
